Residential tower reaches new milestone with six-storey sky bridge

The Damac Tower project has accomplished a major objective, with a “cantilevered sky bridge” now completed.

Nick-named the “Jenga Tower”, due to its stepped design and overhanging structures, the London-based tower is a 50-floor development providing luxury residences. With the construction of the sky bridge, both the north and south tower are united by the six-storey span.

The sky bridge is constructed from concrete and steel, sits 80 metres from ground level and connects the 18th and 24th floor of the Damac Tower. The crossing is set to house an amenity area, a garden that connects to the south tower roof along with four floors of office space.

The bridge was completed over 16 weeks with engineering design by WSP and BG&E, overseen by the architects for the project, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.

Project manager for WSP Andrew Pratt commented:

“The success of this project relied on early engagement with all teams involved as well as highly detailed 3D models which were essential to predicting future coordination issues and ensuring the final smooth delivery of the job.”

The next major step in the construction project will be fitting out the amenity space on the sky bridge’s top floor. The area will contain a wealth of facilities, including a steam room, sauna, state-of-the-art gym and a 20-metre long swimming pool.

At d2 architects, we believe it’s vital that all projects are delivered on time as promised. If you require an architect in Knutsford or Chester, contact our friendly team for assistance.
